A new smartphone from two tech giants 

The Nexus 6P is designed with an all-metal unibody cafted from aeronautical-grade anodized aluminum with diamond chamfers encircling its edges, the sculpted back of the phone accents the low-light-loving, fast-movement-capturing camera.

The phones come in 32 GB ($699) 64 GB ($749) and 128 GB ($849) models and are available in Aluminum (Silver), Graphite (Black), and Frost (White).

“We’re excited to partner with Huawei to introduce customers to Nexus 6P, our most premium phone yet, and Android 6.0, Marshmallow, our most polished and highest-performing OS ever,” said Hiroshi Lockheimer, VP Android, Chromecast and Chrome OS at Google.

The Nexus 6P features a 5.7” WQHD 518ppi AMOLED display and front-facing stereo speakers. It has the latest version of the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor and a powerful 3450mAh battery, with about 7 hours of battery life after a ten minute charge. The phone also has a reversible USB Type-C port, so you won’t have to fumble around when connecting devices to your phone.

“Huawei is very excited to collaborate with Google and deliver a premium Nexus experience for the global market,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group. “We value the way consumers embrace mobile technology in all parts of their lives and have created a smartphone with great design, performance and seamless integration of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest Android release.

The Nexus 6P has a 1.55um pixels camera to help capture more light even in dim conditions. The Nexus 6P also features an 8MP front facing camera with Google’s innovative HDR+ technology, making it one of the best selfie cameras in the market.

On the security side the phones come equipped with Nexus Imprint, a fingerprint scanner. Placed on the back of your device to complement the way you naturally hold it, one touch will turn on your phone and unlock your apps for smooth, easy access. For users in the U.S., Nexus Imprint will also work with Android Pay for quick and easy purchases at thousands of locations nationwide.

The Nexus 6P will be available for pre-order in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland and Japan through the Google Store beginning on Sept 29.
